Mathew Knowles Opens Up About Beyonce And Solange’s Music Journey
The proud dad on Instagram detailed the “Drunk In Love” singer’s musical journey. He shared a throwback picture of the 40- year-old and him having fun. A younger Beyoncé was seen sporting a stylish yellow top as she placed a beef on her father’s head.
Alongside the cute snap, he penned, “I remember not knowing what Beyonce was doing in this very moment, but I could see the big smile on her face and could sense that she was having fun. So I smiled and went along with it because it was making her happy.”
He then pointed out the difficulties of alternating between a parent and a manager. In his words, “We all want to see our children excel academically, athletically, artistically, socially, and so on. Sometimes we need to let them have fun and let their spirits guide them to be the best they could possibly be.”
Following this, he referred to the Grammy- winner saying he acknowledged her passion for performance and knew she would succeed. In addition, the former manager dropped advice for both parents with gifted kids and individuals trying to be successful.
“Be passionate about what you do, love what you do, and have fun while doing it,” he advised.
Shortly after this post was made, a fan asked the motivational speaker to do the same for Solange. Thankfully, he agreed to do this and related parts of the “Almeda” singer’s career on Instagram.
In the caption to the post, he revealed that the “Dreams” singer never wanted to be a member of Destiny’s Child even though he wanted her to be one. However, the songwriter chose to do music her way.

Solange made headlines as the second Black female composer for the dance organization. The “Alien Superstar” singer made it to the event alongside her mom, Ms. Tina, to support the songwriter. As the “Cranes in the Sky” singer sang on stage, Beyonce was completely tuned into the fantastic performance, bobbing her head to the tunes.
